Joint Pain In FeetThe foot contains 26 bones and more than 30 joints, which can create multiple areas for pain to originate.  Swelling, tenderness, stiffness, redness, bruising, and/or increased warmth may accompany the pain in the affected joints. Your podiatrist in Pooler describes joint pain as being caused by trauma, infection, arthritis, bursitis, gout, or structural foot problems.

When you first notice any joint pain in your foot and ankle, your Pooler podiatrist may initially treat your pain with the conservative treatment, RICE, which stands for:

  • Rest
  • Ice
  • Compression
  • Elevation

Your podiatrist in Pooler will also recommend a limitation of walking and weight bearing on the painful foot to ensure further damage does not develop.  Use of steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen, and ice can also help to reduce local inflammation and pain.  Custom orthotics may also be prescribed to support the foot and reduce the pain. 

A podiatrist at the Foot & Ankle Center, PC can best determine the cause of joint pain and recommend the appropriate treatment.  If you are experiencing joint pain in your foot or ankle, schedule an appointment today to ensure a speedy recovery.
